Seriously some of the best curry in London. New owner Ali is super friendly and is great at recommending dishes based on what you like and how spicy you want. I highly recommend everything they serve. It's one of our favourite restaurants!

I've come here a couple of times on a friend's recommendation for a good BYOB Indian, and have loved it each time. The food is impeccable, the atmosphere warm and hospitable. Really one of my favourite places to eat in North London.
